1 in 3 technology projects fail.

  • 15% of all technology projects fail because of high cost variance.
  • 18% are unsuccessful because they were substantially late.

Why such a dismal success rate? All project managers know this simple fact: Project Success is Difficult. But is it as simple to define what changes are necessary to increase project success?

Topics Covered:

  • Precise management of resources. Who is working on what?
  • Accurate project tracking. How do I get this project back on schedule?
  • Definition of project terms. What does “done” really mean?

During this webinar we will explore five ways to improve your odds of successfully completing projects on time and on budget.

Presenter: Curt Finch (LinkedIn) is the CEO of Journyx, the first company to provide Web-based time-tracking, project accounting and resource management solutions & author of Valuing Time as a Business Resource. Curt earned a B.S. in Computer Science from Virginia Tech in 1987 and he has been creating software or managing software teams ever since. In 1997, Curt created the world’s first web-based timesheet application and the foundation for the current Journyx product offerings.

Join Sandra MacGillivray (LinkedIn profile) and learn how to leverage the Project Definition Rating Index (PDRI) to dramatically improve scope definition in construction capital projects.

This webinar provides an introduction to PDRI – the Project Definition Rating Index, a methodology developed by the Construction Industry Institute (CII) to ensure appropriate scope definition in construction projects.

Sandra will share how application of this proven methodology is helping industrial, infrastructure and building projects around the world achieve:

  • Increased cost and schedule certainty
  • Increased team alignment
  • Better transparency on risks

Project teams can easily use PDRI to assess their progress on scope development and work collaboratively to identify gaps and risks early in front end planning – before detailed design and construction begins.
